Scott Robinson Quartet featuring Helen Sung, Martin Wind & Dennis Mackrel.
Scott Robinson is an American jazz multi-instrumentalist. Robinson is best known for his work on multiple saxophones, but he has also performed on clarinet, alto clarinet, flute, trumpet, sarrusophone, and other, more obscure instruments.
Robinson has been awarded four fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts, and participated in a number of Grammy-nominated recordings. He has been profiled in upcoming editions of the Encyclopedia of Jazz and Grove’s Dictionary of Jazz. A recent 4 minute CNN program featured Scott and the giant contrabass saxophone which he used on his CD, Thinking Big. Scott was also the winner of a recent Downbeat Critics Poll under miscellaneous instruments (talent deserving wider recognition).
A respected performer in all areas of jazz, from traditional to avant-garde, Scott Robinson has arrived at his own unique musical voice which, as once described in a Northsea Jazz Festival program, “combines solid foundations with great daring”
